You never know what you’re going to get on a Wacky Wednesday here at Read These Books and Use Them. Today, I need your help! I love the Hunger Games series by Suzanne Collins (love her Gregor series, too). I even had it marked on my calendar when Mockingjay was coming out, but then. . .we are in the process of moving. I have so much to do–packing and cleaning and decluttering. Our house goes on the market next week. We have expenses that have popped up as they do when you are moving and making minor repairs. I already read a book a week for a column. To make a long story short, I haven’t bought Mockingjay yet because I’m being practical, and I want someone to talk me out of my practicality. Anyone out there want to take a stab? If you’ve bought it and read it already at your home or for your classroom, convince me–please.
In the meantime, here are some past Suzanne Collins posts:
I also wanted to tell you about a new deal I have on my sidebar–JUICE IN THE CITY. This is a great new daily deals site (with awesome content, too!) aimed at fun moms, and I have just become an affiliate member. Not only is the site fabulous, but I can earn money as an affiliate, too! Check it out here: Juice in the City.
Juice in the City aims to bring moms what they really want: insanely good deals on crazy-fun things to do…and great content. Each day Juice in the City features something fun for local moms to do at an incredible price. Juice in the City started in the San Francisco Bay Area and is rolling out new cities across the country every few weeks.

Also, I’m teaching a telecourse on making a teacher’s guide to go with your children’s book–for any of you children’s authors out there–on Wednesday, September 8 at 7:00 p.m. CST. The cost is just $5.97–even if you can’t attend the actual call, you can download it at your convenience for the same price. Here’s the link: Get Real Resources
Okay, I guess that’s all the Wacky Wednesday news and ideas I have. Remember, why should I buy Mockingjay now?
